Ohh, ohh, have I got stuff to show this week 🙂 First you might have noticed both a new book and project. I’m still reading One Thousand Gifts. Still loving it. Still taking it slow. But we also have been reading Three Tales of my Father’s Dragon with the boys before bed. Bigger adores it. He got it for Christmas (partly because Mama was tired of the constant requests for My Father’s Dragon and had resorted to hiding it and partly because we needed some more small chapter books.) We flew right through it. Now what?
The project looks like the same yarn but really it’s not. Almost the same color but this is Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Mom’s is Knit Picks Comfy (cotton/acrylic). It’s a hat for me 🙂 Not that this winter is shaping up for me to need it but I suppose the season is still young. And besides, it’s another stash project. Maybe I can finish 2 projects in one week? I also knit a swatch (yeah, really!) for my sweater for me. Sadly it didn’t come out to gauge but I haven’t gotten out my size 9s to try it. It’s been a remarkably productive week.
Here is the major accomplishment. Not a fabulous picture and before blocking but there you have it. My mom’s finished shawl 🙂
Again before blocking but you can get an idea of the lace. Purdy if I do say so myself.
After blocking, attempting a self portrait without the self 😉 I’m sorry I couldn’t get better shots. I have dreams of a nice camera someday but I’m afraid that is a farther off dream than a dishwasher or fenced backyard.
Linking up for Yarn Along at small things and for Stash Bash at Crunchy Catholic Momma 🙂
